On Golden Pond

An Ageless Comedy

August 11 – August 28, 2022

By Ernest Thompson

True love that spans the ages is explored with wit, wisdom, and warmth in this touching relationship comedy.

Ethel and Norman Thayer are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the 48th year for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Their delightful summer routine is thrown for a loop when their daughter Chelsea visits for her dad's 80th birthday, bringing her boyfriend Bill and his teenage son in tow. After an unexpected relationship blooms, fraught family dynamics come to the forefront as they are forced to navigate the generation gap through zippy, tart-tongued observations on fishing, literature, slang, marriage ... and their own mortality.

With its heartwarming message about celebrating the everyday moments in life, On Golden Pond is a classic comedy that speaks to all generations of theatregoers.
